Canon EOS 5DS & EOS 5DS R

Canon EOS 5DS & EOS 5DS R

The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R feature a 50.6MP 35mm and full-frame CMOS sensor processor. The EOS 5DS R enables cancellation of its Optical Low Pass Filter (LPF) effect. On the other hand, the EOS 5DS is equipped with the functional LPF.

Touted as the world’s highest resolution DSLR cameras, the company has introduced a new cam-motor driven mirror mechanism in the EOS 5DS and the EOS 5DS R, which minimises mirror vibrations that occur and cause image shake.

The 150,000-dot RGB+IR metering and automatic exposure system are other key features of these cameras. With latest dual DIGIC 6 image processors, users can shoot for a maximum continuous shooting speed of 5fps at a full resolution of 50.6MP.

Shridhar Kunte from the Better Photography team had reviewed the Canon EOS 5DS, and gave it a 91% rating. This is what he had to say about the camera… “Canon has clearly put their best foot forward with the EOS 5DS, for still photographers. The camera is priced at MRP of Rs 2,52,995/- (about Rs. 40,000 more than 5D MK III). The 50.6MP sensor is capable of delivering extremely fine detail, but this is not a camera for everyone. Sports, wedding and video users are clearly better off with the other Canon DSLRs. It delivers its best results at lower ISO settings, and with RAW. If you need extremely large images, and can combine careful technique with the best L series block lenses (which can get quite expensive), there is no other contender to the megapixel throne at the moment.”
